Oaks Day 2-year-old Oscula kept up a fine season for trainer George Boughey when taking the Group 3 Prix Six Perfections Sky Sports Racing at Deauville on Tuesday afternoon under Ryan Moore.
The Galileo Gold filly gave fine accounts in defeat at Royal Ascot and the July Festival at Newmarket in the aftermath but was rewarded with her consistency across the English Channel earlier this week.
It was the first of a double for Ballydoyle retained rider Moore, who also steered 1,000 Guineas winner Mother Earth to a second Group 1 in the Prix Rothschild later in the card.
Speaking to At The Races, Boughey said: “She was very good, she toughed it out and I think she appreciated running on soft ground again.
“It was very quick when she ran at Newmarket the other day, Ryan gave her a peach of a ride.
“She’s quite a progressive filly and it was nice to see her stay the seven furlongs.
“She’s always shown that she could do it and it’s nice to see her putting it into action and going and winning a Group race, she should be a lot of fun for the owners going forward.
“I imagine she could get a mile and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her go back out there for the Prix Marcel Boussac at the end of the year on Arc day.”
